3.6/5 rDev +5.9%
A: Poured a half finger white colored head that settled very quickly to a thin rim around the glass. Not much can been seen in terms of carbonation. Some lacing. Color is a clear autumn hay.
S: Light sweetness from citrus, essences of earthy grass. Yeast and wheat are the dominate scents.
T: What I would expect from a pale wheat ale. Great balance between the malt, crisp grain, delicate hints of citrus, lemon grass, and hops.
M: Great. Just the right amount of carbonation and stickiness.
O: Overall a little above average. I appreciate the gift all the way from WI. Thanks T!

I am sure I have had this beer before since it is local but I have never sat down to actually review it. Unfortunately for the low abv, this beer was way too much work to drink. What I mean by that is I don't even mind that it is pretty low in alcohol content but it wasn't really that easy drinking of a beer. The mouthfeel was slightly harsh and it felt like there was a bunch of stuff forced into the taste of this beer. Speaking of the taste there was definitely wheat present along with some fruit and light hops. Not a great drinking experience.

A pleasant surprise Christmas gift mixer pack.
A - Pours a slightly hazy pale straw colour, finger of head with little retention and no real lacing.
S - Scent is dominated by bready wheat, hints of citrus rind and grassy hop notes, buttered bread and a hint of lemongrass.
T - Much like the nose with the bready wheat flavour dominating, bitter citrus rind, a touch of orange, pear and apple juice, sweet corn and the buttered bread notes linger alongside a grassy notes and green tea.
M - Medium bodied, a tad prickly going down and finishes surprisingly dry.
O - A tasty wheat ale that offers up a traditional flavour profile for the style. Nothing over the top, but easily sessioned and a perfect summer patio ale.
